Located high atop the Barnwell Mountains of East Texas is one of the state's best kept
offroad secrets - the Barnwell Mountain Recreational Area.
Opened in 2000, this
Texas Motorized Trails Coalition
property offers motorcycle, ATV, and OHV enthusiasts 1,850 acres of pure delight.
The Mountain has something for everyone including a 27+ mile single track trail for
dirt bikes and miles of scenic trails and challenging hills for ATVs and OHVs.
and RV hookups with 30 Amp receptacles are available. Other amenities include showers, restrooms,
an air station, a pavilion, and on-site management.
The park facilities and trail systems were designed and constructed specifically for
motorized off-road purposes. The trail system was developed by the
all-volunteer TMTC membership and is mapped and rated with proper signage.
Whether you are an offroad pro, a novice, or something in between, you will find fun and adventure
for the whole family in a unique and beautiful outdoor setting at Barnwell Mountain.
Come visit us this weekend!
